Maintaining a network like WAVE is extensive concerning staff and costs. The information and communication has to be kept constantly flowing. Exchange of expertise at the local and international level is essential to WAVE’s work. Therefore we try to implement as many projects as possible with our national partners and international feminist NGOs. An important part of the network’s activities is the annual WAVE conference, with the hosting country chosen according to a rotating system. This gathering enables us to pin down shared conclusions and map urgent issues in the field of fighting violence against women in all of Europe.
